Meghan Markle and Prince Harry’s royal family just got even more blessed, literally.

Over the weekend, the Duke and Duchess of Sussex’s son, Archie Harrison Mountbatten-Windsor, was christened in the Private Chapel at Windsor Castle, the official report reads.

The Godly occasion was officiated by the Archbishop of Canterbury Justin Welby. Archie, who is now two months old, was dressed up in lavish history, sporting a royal christening gown that has been worn by other royal infants for over a decade. The gown, which is made of fine lace and satin, was commissioned by Queen Victoria in 1841 and first worn by her oldest daughter. The original was worn by the Queen, her children and her grandchildren until 2004, when a replica was made to preserve the integrity of the first.

A statement from the royals explains that Harry and Meghan were elated to share this moment with their family and the public.
